Sizing Blocks..Grrr.

Thanks to Target and the Champion company I have some walking/running clothes.  It was nice to go around the track, up/down the stairs and gasp, even do a small amount of running.

I think I sized my blocks wrong when I printed out the patterns.  They are to finish at 9 inch blocks, but mine are larger.  I thought I had the settings right for printing.  Grrr.  I hate when this happens.  I cut the fabric squares to 11 inches so I could cut down, but the designs are right next to the edge.  I'm also out of black ink so I can't resize the patterns.  I'd keep them this way, but I'd have to fudge the center panel somehow.  I wish ink wasn't so expensive.  I've spent so much time on these as well.  Maybe I don't need the center panel..LOL.  I've only finished two blocks, so maybe starting over would be okay.  My first block is sorta messed up anyway.  It's just a pain to fold under the edges.
